The trends forum has been a great success over the years. It offers carefully selected samples from exhibitors and manufacturers presenting trends for Autumn/Winter 2013-2014. They are representative samples of the major colors set to drive the season's key looks. At the same time, it gives the head buyers and designers a clear overview of the new trends, colors and fabrics for the upcoming seasons. The themes of the trends forum are also extracts of the latest Evolution Guide 19 Fall/Winter 2013-2014 Trends which was released for the first time at Interfilière Hong Kong.
